Warren EDP

MARCH 2020

Dear Parents:

      Let’s start thinking spring!   First things first…the Warren EDP staff would like to say THANK YOU to all of the families that attended our Variety Show, and also to those that contributed drinks and refreshments that night.  We would also like to thank the children themselves for working so hard and doing a wonderful job with all of their routines. Bravo! If anyone has pictures or video they would like to share, please send them along! 


     We have some  March madness planned for this month.  Our Discovery Center for the month will turn into the  “EDP Ice Cream Parlor”, where the children will learn about ice cream making, talk about favorite ice cream spots, “purchase and sell” ice cream, etc.   I scream, you scream , we all scream for ice cream!



     Yoga Club is up and running with our first meeting taking place on 2/28.  The remaining dates are 3/6, 3/13. 3/20, 4/3, and 4/17. Yoga Club is on Fridays from 4:30-5:15.


 *Early Release Days:  March 11th, 18th, 25th,  and 27th; May 8th. EDP is open until 6:00. 

*Annual Warren EDP Luau:  Wednesday, May 13th. Info coming in April!

     For those of you who have children entering Kindergarten in the 2020-21 school year
and are interested in Kindergarten EDP, we will send home a kindergarten EDP
application for siblings on 2/24, which is before they go out to next year’s
kindergarten families.  Please be sure to ask if you need one. 


      It is a good idea to pack extra socks for your child, maybe even an extra set of pants and mittens, for days that are snowy  The children enjoy playing in the snow, and we want them to be as comfortable as possible when they come back in from the outdoors.  If they have already been outside during the regular school day, chances are their socks and other clothing are already wet!



     The Ashland Extended Day Program is not open if the Ashland Public Schools are closed because of inclement weather.  If there is a delayed opening, Breakfast Bunch will not be held.    If school closes early and EDP is cancelled due to the weather, an EDP staff member will contact you via phone or email to discuss your child’s plan for getting home.



   You can find the Ashland Extended Day Program on the Ashland Public Schools website.  The link can be found under “Parents”. Here you can see what is going on for the month as well as view our blog and any recent tweets on Twitter.


     EDP is open until 6:00 on all Early Release/Dismissal Days, with the exception of 11/27 (the day before Thanksgiving), and 12/20  (the day before Winter Vacation). Only Breakfast Bunch will be held these days; there will be no afternoon EDP. The Early Release Days for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year where EDP is open until 6:00 are  as follows: 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, 3/27, and 5/8. Please keep in mind that the Ashland Extended Day Program follows the Ashland Public Schools calendar.  We are not open on holidays, school vacations, and snow days.


     Tuition is due on or before the 25th of each month for the following month.   Quarterly tuition is due on 9/3, 11/15, 2/1 and 4/15. We do not send out a monthly bill for tuition.   You may submit a check or money order in person  or mail to Ashland Extended Day, 73 Fruit St., Ashland, MA, 01721.   A $5.00 late fee is added after 5 business days of non-payment. Here is a schedule for when tuition is due for the year 2019-20:

April:  3/25

May:  4/27

June:  5/26, if applicable


    The Ashland Extended Day Program closes each day at 6:00.  If you do not think you will be able to pick your child by 6:00, please be sure to arrange for someone else to pick your child up.  EDP staffers work other jobs, have families and obligations too, so please be respectful of time. The cost for late pick up is $1.00 per minute.
